night. in columbus, ohio, bruce springsteen won the cloud for the president but even celebrities could not find a house. in new hampshire, kid rock fronted mitt romney and his wife went to, the place was packed. a very enthusiastic reception. the latest polls, gallup has romney up by one. washington post has obama up by 3 but the sample was skewed the democrats and we got the latest revenues and poll numbers. romney by one, 49-48. 1 twenty million votes will be cast today. it has already begun and "varney and company" is beginning right now. stuart: it is tuesday, november 6th, it is election day. since it is the most critical day of lee year, charles payne is joining the company early. special treat. the mainstream media is pulling for president obama saying signs point to an obama victory but these pictures tell a different story. for the second straight night a packed crowd for mitt romney. thousands attend romney, his wife, kid rock, romneys were overwhelmed with emotion after a long standing ovation. contrast that with these pictures from president obama in ohio. he spoke to a hal
of the badgering done in person or over the air waves impacted early voting. here in columbus, the line stretched out of the door and in the parking lot and people waited in line for two hours to cast a ballot. some of the churches loaded up people on buss and drove them to early voting location. and spokesman said this is resulting in a big surge for president obama. and that is why they fought so hard to keep early voting open in the final weekend leading up to the election here in ohio. associated press reported republicans and democrats, democrats lead by six percent. we can show you video of the absentee ballots and republican response to that. spokesman said they anticipated all along that democrats would lead with early voting, however, the lead is not significant as it was in the last election. they say viewer democrats showed up for early vote more republicans showed up. both sides are predicting a narrow margin of victory and lawyered up have observers here in the polling locations. and every vote counts and every vote will be scrutinized. >> steve: thank you for the live report. everyb
reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008. secondly, ohio is a republican state. 20 of the last 24 years we had republican governors. the legislature is overwhelmingly republican. every elected member of the supreme court of ohio is republican. 75% of elected officials in 88 counties are republicans. and thirdly, by independent voting measures, 10% to 15% of independent voters in ohio are going to vote for mitt romney. and also the catholic church when i go to saint sin vent in kenwood in since is national the minister is telling us vote for religious freedom. vote for the biblical definition of marriage. vote for life. there is half a million catholics energized in south, ohio, to pull the lever for mitt romney. mitt romney will win, ohio, and is going to win ohio easily. >> sean: wisconsin? >> wisconsin will go for romney because what walker did and what
. >>> president obama getting ready to speak at a rally in columbus, ohio. we'll go there when we see him. meanwhile, we're going to quickly which can in on three of the battleground states that we expect potentially decide this presidential election. let's start with ohio. its 18 electoral votes are crucial. you've heard it a million times by now. but history show that is republicans don't win the white house if they don't carry ohio. president obama won ohio back in 2008. george bush barely carried ohio in 2004. cnn's martin savidge joins us from cleveland. early voting, martin, very important for the president. how's it looking where you are in cleveland right now? >> reporter: well, at least the cnn poll of the early voters seem to be going very much in president obama's favor. let me point out something here. the early voting has finally come to an end in the state of ohio. the reason i say finally is it began october 2nd. it ended at 2:00 this afternoon. the complete tallies for the state are not up. but up until friday, 1.6 million early votes were cast. of that, 1.1 million were a
nation on earth. god bless you, ohio. >> president obama earlier today in columbus, ohio at a rally with bruce springsteen, jay-z, also mitt romney stopping in columbus just a few hours later. paul ryan is in vienna, ohio later tonight. governor romney is in cleveland tomorrow. president obama appearing tomorrow in ohio. deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter joins us now. your team keeps saying the governor is in pennsylvania now out of desperation but if he's got no shot there, why has your campaign been sending president clinton to pennsylvania in the home stretch? if the state is not in play, couldn't that time be put to better use somewhere else? >> well, president clinton has traveled through every single battleground state for us. we are enormously thankful. but we're not taking anything for granted. you know, pennsylvania has tightened, absolutely. if i were working on the romney campaign i would probably be giving it a shot, too. >> you don't think it's desperation for the romney campaign to go there? >> well, i think that -- well, you know, i did notice that their super
the president's base supporters-- young people, african americans in cleveland and columbus-- then you could see a much closer race at least in ohio than the public polls show. we should say because we haven't mentioned yet,if at happens given the way they count protestants in the state -- provisional ballots and absentee ballots we may not know. >> that would be november 17. >> and we could have a situation where he wins the three southern states and colorado and ohio are laying out there. >> which means we have to be looking closely at virginia. virginia early tomorrow evening the polls will close and if virginia goes for romney we could be in for a very long night. >> i absolutely agree because in some ways bain and the auto bailout asidevirginia is tougr state for governor romney because it has lots of young people, lots of suburban voters who are on social issues, i think that's the one place where there are women's issues their agenda has worked well and hispanics and african americans so if governor romney wins that state it mean he is will be strong we are the northern virginia voters w
in the mythical stories that we tell ourselves. they are myths that begin with in 1492, columbus sailed the ocean blue and tell how the pilgrims and indians gave thanks for a bountiful harvest over a turkey dinner but none of the lessons prepare students to deal with the duty which they will be charged with as american adults, how to become responsible citizens. joining my panel is seth andrew, founder and superintendent of democracy prep, public schools. i want to move our conversation a little bit. this close to the election, what i want to talk about as a teacher is not just what's going to happen in this election but what's going to happen going forward. when i was looking at these tests of national civic knowledge, i was completely freaked out. may of 2011, fewer than 5% are demonstrating advanced levels of knowledge. what kind of social studies are we teaching? >> we have a crisis when we think of the actual knowledge of our o our electorate. we have kids that get out of school and they can't determine truth from lies. we have to rethink civic education in america in a dramatic way. we thin
, then back to ohio, this huge battleground state where the columbus dispatch puts the president just two points ahead. so, as you talk about the fact that the obama campaign has done a good job of trying to disqualify mitt romney as a candidate, the american people see him as a viable choice. >> this is a very close election. you can compare it to 2004, no doubt about it, but there is a real force that has been out there for four years against the president. there's been a narrative in the tea party real m, that the economy isn't good. there's a lot of information voters out there, a lot of head shakers that aren't convinced. the dislike of the president is the best thing he's got going for him. the president did win 66 of the vote four years ago. wisconsin has become -- the gop than they expected. >> ryan has failed to deliver positive polling in wisconsin since he's been on the ticket. mitt romney, his campaign has not had any momentum in wisconsin to the point where they had ab ahead in any of the polls. said they were going to vote r for president obama, i don't see the romney campai
, wisconsin, columbus, ohio, freeport, illinois, newton, iowa, denver, colorado, miami, florida, we have been every of where. americans everywhere feel the pulse of this country, we can do better. this is an election about the hard working people that i have e met all over this country. so tomorrow we can take a right turn and go back to the policies that hurt the middle class or continue down the path of progress with president obama. i ask you to do one thing tomorrow. get out and vote. that's "the ed show." the "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening. i'm look forward to being here with you all tomorrow night. it's going to be great. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago tonight, it was actually the night after the '08 presidential election. we voted november 4th. we vote november 6th this time. so november 5th was the night after barack obama had just walloped john mccain in that year's presidential election. you remember the electoral college map. the total 365 electoral votes for obama and only 173 for john mccain. barack o
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
. the cliche about ohio is there are fiveeparatehio there's columbus, more catholics up in the north. but it stretches south. >> woodruff: do you see anything else in those numbers? are are we about to make another call? wyoming, okay. we're calling wyoming for mitt romney. the home of dick cheney. i think this is the state that president obama had the worst showing in, in 2008 if i'm not mistaken. so this is not also not a surprise. >> ifill: also dick cheney's state. >> woodruff: we're going to look it up right now. any of those results say anything? >> population density does matter. you go to a dense area you're probably in a democratic area. you go to a sparse area -- and wyoming certainly qualifies -- you're probably in a republican area. >> woodruff: it's beautiful out there. >> it certainly is. their electoral vote should count for more. >> ifill: so is new york. we were talking earlier and we were talking to margaret about exactly why mitt romney would spend his day today in a dense area. i saw he gave an interview to a radio station where he sicay said i don't want to sit a
)" >> brown: the president made three stops in the buckeye state, starting in hilliard, just outside columbus. >> in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. and this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. ( applause ) >> brown: and the trend line seemed promising, as well. since july, the economy has added an average of 173,000 jobs per month, up from just 67,000 a month in the spring. at the same time, though, the unemployment rate ticked up a tenth of a point in october to 7.9% as more people began looking for work again. in west allis, wisconsin, the president's republican challenger, mitt romney, focused on that number, insisting again, "we can do better." >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now, and today we learn it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took of
'm going to be watching most is the area around columbus, franklin county. and it's not just for a selfish purpose. i really think that is going to be a county that could swing either way. we've seen that in congressional races and we've seen that in presidential races in the past. a lot of folks have looked at southwest ohio where cincinnati is. it's expected president obama will take cincinnati. i think franklin county could be where a lot of action is tonight. i can oaga county, where cleveland is, that's going to be heavily democratic. in fact, all of northern ohio is going to be heavily democratic. western ohio, alongside i-75, which leads up to michigan, that's going to be strong republican turnout. and of course we have the rural areas. those are going to be interesting to watch as well. >> one of the things we heard so much in the campaigns is it's a story about unemployment, and especially in ohio. i've pulled up the unemployment numbers, according to the bureau of labor statistics as of september 2012, and on the lower half of the state you see pretty bad unemployment, 9.4% in mo
president obama. 24% going for governor romney. mike tobin is live in columbus, ohio, now with more. mike? >> reporter: and, jon, to take your auto bailout point a step further, you look at the county-by-county breakdown in ohio, most of the state shows up red. mitt romney won most of the real estate in ohio, the president won the population centers, particularly in the northern part of the state. that's where the manufacturing is done, that's where the auto parts are made, that's where all the points about the auto bailout really hit home. there's another point that can't be ignored out here, and that's a court ruling that really seemed to contribute to the outcome. republicans here in ohio and the republican secretary of state wanted to close early voting in the weekend leading up to the election. the court said they couldn't do it. it was a big part of the democrats' ground game not just to get out the vote, but to get out the early vote. and we saw over the weekend the lines streaming out the door, people waiting in line two hours to cast a ballot between saturday and monday. there we
was there today. and our steve brown is there as well live in columbus with more on this enormous battleground. what's the mood, steve? >> well, the polls have closed but voting continues. it is a situation around the ohio state university campus that we're aware of now that if you are in line as the polls close you still get a chance to vote. they will let whoever was in the line part of the 7:30 vote. we started receiving reports that there was a line of over 700 nero -- near ohio state university and one person said it is more like 200. the governor said he was on his way out there to keep folks entertained and keep them company to keep them in line. in this state there is no such thing as extra votes. karl alluded to this a few minutes ago there will be an earlier indicator how this state goes. folks who were veteran political watchers in the state say about 45 minutes in, about 8:15 because the early votes are the ones that get counted and because the obama campaign has made it so central to the campaign strategy that should give them an idea how many votes or what size of a lead the ear
in the 2000 election? cnbc's scott cohn joins us from columbus, ohio. good morning to you, scott. >> reporter: good morning, andrew. it could be if it's a close race that ohio 2012 makes florida looks like child's play. say what you will at enthusiasm, here at ohio state university the youth vote is turning out, lined up half an hour before the polls opened at 6:30 eastern time this morning. the line is moving but moving slowly but they are indeed here. how important is ohio? president obama joined by bruce springsteen and jay-z appeared before about 15,000 supporters at a rally in town town columbus yesterday afternoon. governor romney appeared at an airport rally, olympic figure skater scott hamilton and golfer jack nicklaus providing the star power. along with the armies of campaign worker answer supporters are armies of lawyers already legal battles out if here in ohio, the latest involves this, this is the paperwork that accompanies a provisional ballot. dl is a court case pending. if there is a close race, 50,000 votes on either side it could all come down to this. >> provisional ballot
those votes. we've been to columbus, cleveland. those are the high numbers that the president, scott, is too close to call there tonight my campaign sources say. >> pelley: jan, thank you. the president of course has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be re-elected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign. and nancy cordes is covering the uniquobama campaign. she's in chicago tonight. nancy you spent quite a bit of time in ohio as well. >> i sure did, scott. the other day was a perfect example. we're five days out from election day. the president spentsdz the you're day barn storming ohio. heads home to the whitehouse to sleep and then comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just sowch he naifers this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country he this election season. 26 of them, more than a quarter were in one state, ohio. and he wasn't just in the big cities, he went to the suburbs, he went to small towns. and the main reason that the ohio campaign fo
this morning from columbus, ohio. >> gretchen: i missed you in those debates this year because you always had the great quip. >> thank you very much, gretchen. i want to say to brian and all of his neighbors my heart goes out to you guys. it just devastating. to see this destruction, you know, i don't think people can fully comprehend and god bless you for hanging in there and having such a great spirit. it's encouragement to everybody. >> steve: absolutely. >> brian: everyone around me got it worse and my family and everything like that wondering when things are going to get started. i want to chronicle from the average day perspective what it is going to take to get the lights on, answers on insurance in cases of people needed fema. i want to see the response time and what the problem is with getting gas. because if you look at what we did in haiti and other countries to help out, i mean, i'm not saying in a little while you are going to need air drops of food because the supermarkets aren't getting restocked. gas is not coming in and no one is going to be able to help there is a lot of tru
herald." the end of the road, clinton stops here. -- clumps here, romney finishes tonight. the columbus dispatch out of ohio, it's decision time. poll hours, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. the subhead, the last push. a big choice on the government's role is how they decided to headline the subhead. candidates may be close in the polls but their visions are wide apart. just to give you a sam planing of how the newspapers are playing out. as far as our question of why you decided to vote or maybe not decide to vote, there is a website who writes about the idea of those within florida, she's intrusived about those who are not going to vote tonight. she writes in part this. it's true that everybody should vote. but what you'll never hear from the parties is that democracy is better off without voter who is don't do any homework. the rhetoric you hear is about the absolutely no obligation to vote but there are valid reasons to sit it out and among the, if your ballot will an exercise of random selection. you don't feel comfortable with the choices, you might be in the same boat as craig engle. he's a
it on current tv. host: ron from columbus georgia, independent line. caller: good morning. i do agree with your comment about campaign is over, let's govern. but i am a veteran and i've been a company commander and my point is is this, i cannot call my boss and say i cannot get my company commanders to agree on how to accomplish a commission. i won't be a company commander very long. here's the point, the american people are the boss. there should be a law that's presented to congress that says from mr. president on down to congress, if you cannot solve the country's problems you need to go. it's just that simple. americans are sick and tired of the partisan politics and we just don't see the greatest country in the world moving forward the way it's supposed to be. and it's because you've got these guys playing partisan congress. there should not be a republican or democrat, it should be america's party after you're elected to congress. guest: i agree with the principle but we have the means in place if we use it and that's an election. every two years members of the house of represent ives are
, with the potential to go to law school. i think romney lost a lot of people in columbus because of that 47%,. >> i am really upset. i cannot believe we again got mr. obama into the white house. i am a nurse. it has been hard in the lower rio grande valley finding a job for a lot of nurses. i feel like patients are not being seen, and so forth, due to to lot of medicare cuts. you see it. yet you go to the groceries and see ladies with their michael korda's purses -- kors purses, and they pay with their lone star card. >> i am shocked and dismayed how this man could have won again. the election -- so many people are out of work. i am an executive in this community who lost his job, who was able to find a job. there are no jobs. the woman who called before, the situation with obama, with our troops and with our embassy -- i think he handled it improperly. i would not be surprised that there might not be an impeachment trial that starts. i think the country is more divided today than ever before. i think he was able to win because so many people have moved to the bottom side of the scale, because there i
